A lecture by Amber N. Wiley.

Amber N. Wiley, Ph.D., who previously taught at Tulane, is an Assistant Professor of American studies at Skidmore College after spending a year abroad as the inaugural Society of Architectural Historians H. Allen Brooks Traveling Fellow to Mexico, Guatemala, Ghana, Ethiopia, India, and Vietnam. While traveling, she saw not only the ways that communities create, inhabit, and think about space, but what these interactions reveal about the society in which the space is produced. Come hear her speak about her adventure and these intersections of architecture, urbanism, preservation, culture, and public history.

Amber received her Ph.D. in American Studies from GWU, a Master’s in Architectural history from UVA, Certificate in Historic Preservation from the University of Virginia School of Architecture, and a B.A. in Architecture from Yale University. She also sits on the board of the Vernacular Architecture Forum and is a member of the National Park System Advisory Board Landmark Committee.
